Soccer Training Videos

Soccer-for-Parents is thrilled to present this six-part series of  soccer training videos.

Called "Soccer Training at Home", the technical content of this series was developed by 

Michael Louter, former professional player in the Netherlands and current director of coaching for U15-18 at FC Dallas Tri soccer club.

Video shooting and production was done by yours truly and my son Daniel assisted by being the male player in the videos.  Please leave feedback if you like the series.  I have also made this set of soccer training videos a convenient playlist on Youtube.

The purpose of these soccer training videos called 'Soccer Training at Home' is five-fold:

  1. Understanding that soccer skill development is only accomplished by the player practicing with the ball at home.
  2. Expectation that the self-pronounced serious soccer player will practice at home a minimum of 10 minutes a day on passing, receiving, dribbling, and moves.
  3. How to self-train in soccer is empowered by the attitudes of positivity, being critical, dedication, and setting goals.
  4. The motive of seeking to become a better player is always founded in have FUN! False motives (ie. status in community) leads to burn-out.
  5. Improving the general mechanics of passing, receiving, dribbling, and moves.

And now, onto the show ...
